There’s snow stopping me! Red squirrels frolick in the white stuff

THESE red squirrels were snapped having a snow-ball of a time as they playfully chased each other through the trees.

The creatures were spotted running along branches amid heavy snowfall on Monday. And one was even lucky enough to find a hazelnut — which it brought along with it.

Photographer Sue Demetriou, 51, loves watching nature so much she and fiance Mark Johnson built a hide near her home in Bridge of Cally, Perth and Kinross, where she captured the animals at play.

‘I was out in a hide behind my property,’ the mum-of-one said. ‘The squirrels are really active. They run about and chase each other. We feed them every day.’

She added getting the perfect shot was a ‘difficult’ task as it was ‘snowing quite heavily’ outside.
